People often think that. HE didn't invent anything. He is not a tech guy. He's an MBA who was a friend of Mike Lazardus (sp), who was/is the tech guy.

Balsillie did nothing of particular note before hooking up with Lazardus. Balsillie's success is completely an accident of "Right place, right time".
